Motto

I am grateful to fate for three gifts: to have been born a woman, from the working class and an oppressed nation.

And the turbid azur of being three times a rebel.

Maria-Mercè Marçal (1952-1998), poet, novelist, editor and translator. The translation of this motto is by D. Sam Abrams.

The original text in Catalan has been painted on the wall of the Bar Patagònia, Carrer Abeurador, 14 in Banyoles.
